Placing funny wedding cake toppers on a wedding cake has become a popular way of adding a unique touch to your reception. Your guests have something to talk about from the moment they walk in, and your wedding theme can get reflected right down to the tiniest detail. Moreover, remember that you will have a keepsake from your cake that will not melt when you take it out of the freezer.
Deciding on your own cake topper can be a challenge with the multitude of choices out there. Here are a few tips on how to select the one that is right for you. Think about the following:
- Do you want to make people laugh?
- Is there a hobby or sport you are both really involved in?
- Is your theme something you want to remember for years?
- Is this a memento you can display on a shelf in the living room?
- Will you embarrass anyone with the topper you have selected?
Make sure that you will feel comfortable displaying your cake topper in front of all your guests. If it is something that is going to give your granny a heart attack, rethink your choice. Otherwise, funny wedding cake toppers can be one of the hits of the party. However, if you want a more conservative or elegant wedding, go for monogram, vintage or traditional cake toppers.
You can find wedding cake toppers in a variety of places or create your own. Online stores have the widest variety and a good cake person can customize a Caucasian one to be ethnic if you need it. You can also find many themed toppers online. An alternative is to have your cake person mold one out of fondant or chocolate. You will not be able to use it as a keepsake, but the sky is the limit on what you can make.
Other options involve making your own cake topper. If you know a local sculptor or someone good at crafts, they can make one for you. Or, if someone in the family is good with their hands, try to persuade them to make one for you. Just make sure they get it done on time! Finally, did a parent or grandparent keep theirs? That would truly be vintage and could bring something ‘old’ to your wedding that is unique and memorable. Personally, I still like funny wedding cake toppers best if I could do my own wedding all over again, but that is just my own preference. You need to go with your first instinct.
